  MY ANGELINE  

She kept her secret well, oh, yes,
    Her hideous secret well.
We together were cast, I knew not her past;
    For how was I to tell?
I married her, guileless lamb I was;
    I'd have died for her sweet sake.
How could I have known that my Angeline
    Had been a Human Snake?
Ah, we had been wed but a week or two
    When I found her quite a wreck:
Her limbs were tied in a double bow-knot
    At the back of her swan-like neck.
No curse there sprang to my pallid lips,
    Nor did I reproach her then;
I calmly untied my bonny bride
    And straightened her out again.

                    Refrain

My Angeline! My Angeline!
Why didst disturb my mind serene?
My well-belovËd circus queen,
My Human Snake, my Angeline!
At night I'd wake at the midnight hour,
    With a weird and haunted feeling,
And there she'd be, in her robe de nuit,
    A-walking upon the ceiling.
She said she was being "the human fly,"
    And she'd lift me up from beneath
By a section slight of my garb of night,
    Which she held in her pearly teeth.
For the sweet, sweet sake of the Human Snake
    I'd have stood this conduct shady;
But she skipped in the end with an old, old friend,
    An eminent bearded lady.
But, oh, at night, when my slumber's light,
    Regret comes o'er me stealing;
For I miss the sound of those little feet,
    As they pattered along the ceiling.

                    Refrain

My Angeline! My Angeline!
Why didst disturb my mind serene?
My well-belovËd circus queen,
My Human Snake, my Angeline!

                        Harry B. Smith.
